'McDonalds, lager and a blow job on the way home. The sun's shining and it's the one day of the fortnight I' got money in the bank. Today, I live like a f*cking king!'
19-year-old Mark lives in Highgate, a district of city-centre Birmingham, and exists from one DWP payment to the next. He cares for his drug-addict mum and her new-born baby, but the relationship is completely dysfunctional, as he is being forced to live a life he never signed up for. He seems to be willing to take desperate measures to change things forever. But how far will he go?"
'She doesn't feel like my mum. She doesn't do stuff mums do. Ha, does she f*ck. She gets leathered and smacked up and tries to shag my mates.'
Bones is a poignant and emotionally charged drama about a young man trying to find his place in a world that doesn't want him. Mark's tale will chew you up, spit you out, and then make you wonder why you cared in the first place.
'I wore my LA Lights til they were hanging off my feet. They were about two sizes too small and the lights stopped working ages before I binned them. Tyler Sharp called me a pov at school so I kicked his f*cking face in.'
